The statement of economic interests required by this Article
shall include the economic interests of the person making the statement as
provided in this Section.
(a) The interest (if constructively controlled by the
person making the statement) of a spouse or any other party, shall be

For a beneficial interest in a trust, the value is based on the total value of the assets either subject to the beneficial interest, or from which income is to be derived for the benefit of the beneficial interest, regardless of whether any distributions have been made for the benefit of the beneficial interest;
(2) excluding the income from the position that
requires the filing of a statement of economic interests under this Act, each source of income in excess of $7,500 during the preceding calendar year (as required to be reported on the filer's federal income tax return covering the preceding calendar year) for the filer and his or her spouse and, if the sale or transfer of an asset produced more than $7,500 in capital gains during the preceding calendar year, the transaction date on which that asset was sold or transferred;
(3) each creditor of a debt in excess of $10,000
that, during the preceding calendar year, was: (i) owed by the filer, (ii) owed jointly by the filer with his or her spouse or (iii) owed jointly by the filer with his or her minor child or children;
(4) the name of each unit of government of which the
filer or his or her spouse was an employee, contractor, or office holder during the preceding calendar year other than the unit or units of government in relation to which the person is required to file and the title of the position or nature of the contractual services;
(5) each person known to the filer to be registered
as a lobbyist with any unit of government in the State of Illinois: (i) with whom the filer maintains an economic relationship, or (ii) who is a member of the filer's family;
(6) each source and type of gift or gifts, or
honorarium or honoraria, valued singly or in the aggregate in excess of $500 that was received during the preceding calendar year, excluding any gift or gifts from a member of the filer's family that was not known to the filer to be registered as a lobbyist with any unit of government in the State of Illinois; and
(7) the name of any spouse or immediate family member
living with such person employed by a public utility in this State and the name of the public utility that employs such person.
For the purposes of this Section, the unit of local government in relation to which a person is required to file under item (e) of Section 4A-101.5 shall be the unit of local government that contributes to the pension fund of which such person is a member of the board.
(b) Beginning December 1, 2025, and for every 5 years thereafter, the Secretary of State shall adjust the amounts specified under this Section that prompt disclosure under this Act for purposes of inflation as determined by the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers as issued by the United States Department of Labor and rounded to the nearest $100. The Secretary shall publish this information on the official website of the Secretary of State, and make changes to the statement of economic interests form to be completed for the following year.
(c) The Secretary of State shall develop and make publicly available on his or her website written guidance relating to the completion and filing of the statement of economic interests upon which a filer may reasonably and in good faith rely.
